The Museum’s mission
The USS Constitution Museum serves as the memory and the educational voice of USS CONSTITUTION, by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the stories of “Old Ironsides” and the people associated with her. We seek to create a positive, memorable experience for both children and adults by inspiring within them a love for the freedom that CONSTITUTION symbolizes. We will share CONSTITUTION’s contributions with a global audience, and we will strive to be the best museum possible based on scholarship and innovative ways of sharing CONSTITUTION’s stories.
The highest recognition by the Board of Trustees of a person whose public service has enhanced the image of USS CONSTITUTION and who reflects the best of Admiral Morison: artful scholarship, patriotic pride, an eclectic interest in the sea and things maritime, and a desire to preserve the best of our past for future generations.
